China bans pop artists

China has recently deemed Lady Gaga a threat to their “national cultural security,” according to the censors at the country’s Ministry of Culture.

As part of the “regulation of management of Internet culture,” music downloading sites have been told to remove around 100 songs, including 20 foreign songs, or face the music (no pun intended). Lady Gaga leads the pack of artists on the censored list, with six of her latest album songs, including “Judas.”

Other artists mentioned on the list of band music include Katy Perry, Kanye West, Natalie Walker, Simple Plan and The Backstreet Boys.

We have a hard time believing that any of these artists are a threat to national security. Give us your opinion by commenting below.
